1 overnight Serena Inn

Days 2, 3: Zanzibar
In the morning we take the fascinating Stone Town tour: from aromatic market stalls laden with exotic and endemic spices and lush tropical fruit, to the site of the former slave market razed to make way for an Anglican Church in 1874.

We visit the old British Consulate where Livingstone’s body lay before he was shipped back to Britain and we walk through the historic Stone Town itself to Livingstone’s house, to the 1890 House of Wonders and ruins of 18th century Arab forts and palaces. In the afternoon we visit the Jozani Forest.
The next day we take advantage of the cooler morning time for a four hour guided Spice Tour. We start by visiting the Mangapwani slave caves, then onto Chuini and Kizimbani spice farms, where we will have an opportunity to view cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, nutmeg and much more. Tropical fruits include jack fruit, bread fruit, pineapples, bananas and coconuts including many other rare and useful plants such as henna.

We return to the Zanzibar town after a brief stop at the 1850 Persian baths which were built by Sayyid bin Sultan (the first Sultan) for his wife Princess Scherezade, granddaughter of Fateh Ali, Shah of Persia.
